Easy Quinoa Tabbouleh

Rated as 5 out of 5 Stars

"A refreshing twist on tabbouleh. Quinoa is used instead of bulgur, pomegranate in place of tomatoes and mint replaces cilantro. The pomegranate gives the salad an irresistible tangy crunch! Great side dish for a Mediterranean-style brunch of omelets, fresh bread, cheeses and freshly squeezed OJ."

A great recipe. I used red quinoa and it was excellent. Left out basil on accident; still good. Will be making this again. Ate it with homemade whole wheat sourdough pita and homemade red pepper...
